Top 5 Fastest Cars In The World

Ever since a child I’ve always enjoyed the thrill of cars racing fast and furiously down a course whether it be GO-karts or formula one. The first production car with a recorded speed was the 1894 Benz Velo that had a top speed of just 12 mph. Few verified records exist from that point until around 1950 when the Jaguar XK120 set a production car speed record of 124.6 mph From this point on, it became a trend for automotive giants to compete for the spot of fastest car, where the automobile had come a long way from 1894.

Here is our list of the top 5 fastest cars in the world present-day, ranked from slowest to fastest.

Bugatti Chiron

Bugatti Chiron was introduced in 2016, The Bugatti Chiron retains the quad-turbo W-16
engine, but power was upgraded to 1,479 horsepower. The official top speed is limited to 261 MPH. The cost of this machine goes for $2.8million.

Bugatti Veyron Super Sport
The Bugatti Veyron maybe 16 years old as of 2021, but it’s still among the fastest supercars
ever built. Actually, the record set by Bugatti in 2010 places the Veyron in fourth place with a top
speed of 267.8 mph. The cost of this machine goes for $1.9million.

Hennessey Venom GT
The Venom GT was introduced in 2011 and remained in production until 2017. Despite the seemingly long run, only 13 cars were built. The Venom GT hit its highest top speed in February 2014, when it reached 270.4 mph on Kennedy Space Center’s shuttle landing strip in Florida. The cost of this machine goes for $1.6million.

Koenigsegg Agera RS
The most powerful version of the Agera, the Agera RS, became the world’s fastest car in November 2017, when Koenigsegg hit an average speed of 277.9 mph. The record lasted less than two years, but the Agera RS still owns a handful of benchmarks, including acceleration from 0 to 200 mph, braking from 200 to 0 mph, and 0 to 200 mph, and back to a full stop. The cost of this machine goes for $4.1million.

Modified Bugatti Chiron
The Chiron is already among the fastest cars in the world with a top speed of around 261 mph, but the French firm wanted to set a new record, so it created an even more potent beast. Bugatti took the slightly more powerful engine from the Centodieci, rated at 1,578 horsepower (99 more than the standard Chiron), added longer gear ratios to the gearbox, and crafted a revised aerodynamic package that increases the car’s length by almost 10 inches. The modified car hit a top speed of 304.7 mph on August 2nd, 2020. The cost of this machine goes for $3.9million.
